If you’re open to a journey, new destinations will find you.
On his blog, artscott.net challenges everyone to ‘create something once a day for a week’. So that’s what I’m doing!
This year, my journey began when I went back to ‘school’ after many years to study some journalism. I was cornered into a blogging assignment (groan) … but now, blogging is a whole new wonderful adventure!
Embracing a writing journey, I discovered I loved taking the photos to illustrate my posts just as much! Who knew? So I bought a better camera and, yesterday, a first tripod!
I was looking to learn more about photography so I went on the WordPress ‘Reader’ trail. Along the way I found the blog artscott.net, the blog of an artist who has gone from zero to sixty in a short time on his creative journey.
Scott’s motivational ‘About Art’* page challenges everyone to jump into the creative process (whatever medium it may be) and ‘create something once a day for a week’.
So that’s what I’m doing! I’m letting my new camera teach me as I have fun exploring what it can do.
Rather than knowing where I’ll end up, I’m happy just to set off and see what I find. Don’t laugh, I don’t know much. But I’m willing to embrace whatever comes my way.
And it is a better camera than I had: a bridge digital camera, not a compact but not a DSLR … well, not yet anyway!
So, off to my week of wonders and wherever-it-will. ♦
